Second Life's Emerald client facing obsolescence {Massively}

Aug 25th 2010 10:21AM There are 2 main things that have popped up in the past few days:

Multiple iframes on the login screen that loaded pictures from a website effectively creating a DDoS attack of sorts. Although the person who reportedly owns the site said he has not touched it in months and really does not care but I have not looked into it much more.

The second thing was the emkdu.dll

kdu.dll is a rendering library file that LL uses and it is called llkdu.dll
They have v4 of the file. Fractured decided to buy a license to it. That became emkdu.dll and is at v6 (and faster than the linden's version).
Now because it is purchased and is within the SVN with the source they had to add a sort of DRM to it. This involved them having it report to Him and certain others where this file is located on their computer. Now this is where the privacy part comes in.

When they found out they can get peoples names (on macs) they had Phox (apparently) fix it so it wont display their names. Now he did not think about Windows as the default install path is C:/Program Files which does not have a username. Well people do not install it there and put it elsewhere resulting in their username or real name being revealed (For example my full path to the desktop would be C:/Users/Jord/Desktop). This was the other problem as not many people on the emerald team knew about this.

What caused them to be removed from the TPV was the DDoS attack. The privacy issue was not thinking straight to prevent the file from being used elsewhere. Now there MIGHT be more hidden code within the viewer but until they go over it all now with full access rights, they wont know until they go over everything.
